Bob Marley – African Herbman Free Audio Download
The Wailers’ Rasta-influenced reinterpretation of Indian Rope Man transforms Richie Havens’ composition to speak of the karmic cycle of man, particularly the slaves from Africa and their resistance to the slavemasters. Some of the slaves were true African Herbsman, unifying the Rastaman in Jamaica with the African Herbman and the slaves in America.
“African Herbman Lyrics”African Herbsman, why linger on?
Just concentrate cuz heaven lives on
Retired slaveman, will look with a scorn
With a transplanted heart [Bridge – Bob Marley and the Wailers] [The Wailers] Yes how quick we have to part
Yes how quick we have to part
I’m taking illusion on the edge of my mind
I’m taking losers down through my life
Down through my life, yeah [Bridge – Bob Marley and the Wailers] [The Wailers] Yes how quick we have to part
Yes how quick we have to part [Bob] Did they part? Yes they part!
In remembrance of today…
Yes how quick we have to part [Bob] In remembrance, of today, brings sad feelings of tomorrow
African, African Herbsman
